MMZ – A painful Revenge (The Reporter’s Diary) – Shot 3
Precap: Ardhika’s involvement in the murder. Radhika in dilemma to inform Venu or not.
Rads thought gets disturbed by a phone call. She looks at the number and immediately attends it.
Rads, “What? Again?”
Rads, “Ok don’t get panic. We are coming”
She disconnected the call and looks at Arjun who stands beside her. Arjun observes her and finds her upset & holds her shoulder saying, “Will go”. She nods and goes with him.
After hardly 45 mins of travel, they came out of an highway and now driving into a small lane. Since they are in bike, it is easy for them to drive on the one way path where in both the sides are covered with paddy fields. Since it is late night and no street lights it is little difficult task to travel with the dim headlight on the bike. They find a small isolated hut after 20 mins of journey and the hut is situated at the center of the banana fields where the outsider couldn’t find this hut so easily unless they are aware of the surroundings.
Ardhika stops their bike infront of the hut and once she gets down from there, Arjun pushes the bike inside the Hay which is kept aside and walks inside. Time passes and Ardhika spending nearly an hour and comes out locking the door and looks sad at each other. Radhika is in verge to cry at anytime and with sobbing voice, “Lets leave Arjun. I couldn’t stand here anymore. Only the screams are echoing in my ears”
Arjun gets his bike and again both started their journey to the city and It is midnight when they reach the flat. Rads mobiles peeps with a message..she opens it and finds Venu’s message in her inbox. She is surprised seeing his message at this time and shows it to Arjun. Arjun smiles reading it and looks Radhika saying, “So are you gonna submit the article tomorrow?”
Rads goes to the board, takes a boardpin and pins it against the Commissioner’s face saying, “How about giving a shock to the department? Especially this commissioner?”
Arjun spits the water from his mouth looking at her shockingly, “You mean?” he extends it saying and looks for her answer.
Rads smiles at him saying, “Arjun, Do you think Media is always giving only the true information? Never, it will always have the mixture of Fake information too….and sometimes only the fake news gets viral and overlap the truth. People will start believe the one which the media is pushing on them. They don’t have time to do Research to check whether we are really giving the correct news or not.”
Arjun, “Don’t judge everyone like that Radhika. People are there and is capable enough to differentiate between Fake and Truth”
Rads, “I Agree your point but that is maximum of 30% people but what about 70%?. They still believe the news what the media shows or tells them. They are very busy in their own life to increase their life style and status of their family. Not worrying about the Country or the other victims who suffered till death.”
Arjun observes her the tone is changing in her and she looks little terrific now and anytime she will burst out in anger. Her eyes clearly showing how much hatred she has now and she is ready to pour it to anyone. Arjun in a calm tone, “Radhika…you are exaggerating it. It is our responsibility to show the truth to the common people and we should guide them what is right and wrong. If we feels that it is fake then we should not take it to them at first place.”
Rads a plain smile occurs at her face which gives him a sign that she decided something already, and she says, “Arjun…do you know who is Dr. Udo Ulfkotte?”
Arjun, “Nope..no idea”
Rads connects her laptop and searches for that name in google and shows him the results saying, “He is a German Journalist. He is one of the popular Journalist in German. He wrote a book called “BOUGHT JOURNALISTS” and this illustrates how the CIA and other secret services pay money to journalists to report a particular story in a certain light. He quoted everything clean and clear in that book by stripping the media and journals true identity of being a puppet in the supreme’s hands. And adding to this in one interview he dropped a bombshell by admitting that media gives fake news on one’s favour. See this site he admits everything when he stated that the mainstream media writes under direct CIA pressure.”
Rads starts reading the content of that interview to him ,”I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public. But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia — this is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all over Europe.
-Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, a top German journalist and editor and has been for more than two decades”
She stops and looks at the pale face of Arjun. She pats his shoulder asking, “Do you need to know anything more than this?”
Arjun looks blank and she continues, “Why to go to German Arjun? We have a solid proof in our country itself. We have N number of news channels who is telecasting only the news favouring only for their supporting party. If they don’t like the opposition then saying all bad things about them and spreading it to the common people. And as a common man we are also believing those bullshit news at certain point. We people know everything around us but we are not reacting for it. To be Frank, i don’t know how many will accept this…actually we are following Gandhi’s 3 wise monkey’s principles correctly. See no evil…Hear no evil…speak no evil.
And the ultimate is Evil is happening infront of our eyes, but we are walking away from there of not seeing it…Innocents are crying, screaming for help but we just pass away of not hearing it…And when it comes to speak against evil we all become dumb. This is what is happening currently. Who is there to stand against the crimes in the society? No one will stand with you. You have to stand on your own and raise your voice if you need justice otherwise they will think you are a dead body and just walk by stamping you.”
Arjun is jaw dropped seeing her arguements and leaves a sigh saying, “What you gonna do now?”
Rads smiles, “I am gonna follow the same route which Dr. Udo followed initially. Just HIDE THE TRUTH and PUBLISH THE FAKE”
Rads looks at her laptop again and starts modifying her article. Arjun also sits with her and they both discuss something and completes the article. Arjun gone through once and shows thumbs up to her. She smiles and sent this copy to the Printing Section without sending it to the review of the Cheif Editor Venu. She really needs this news to be published on the next day’s morning paper itself. She knows very well that Venu never reviews her articles coz of the confident he has on her and she always sent the article directly to the printing section to post it and his confidence never broke up before. But for this even god does not know how he gonna react after reading the article tomorrow.
Arjun, “Do you think it will work?”
Rads, “Hope so. Because we pointed the department here and they will not keep quiet right. They themselves will start digging the truth”
Arjun finds radhika’s tensed face, “Get ready for the punch tomorrow by Venu”
Radhika rolls her eyes and goes to her room to sleep. Arjun stares her the way she goes saying, “Now i have to be more responsible and careful to keep you safe. I am sure what is gonna happen after this article gets published”
Next day, Rads mobile is ringing continuously but she is damn care to pick it up. Next it is of Arjun’s mobile, he attends the call in the sleeping mode but gets jerk hearing the voice from other side.
Yes it is Venu who is screaming at him his high pitch.
Venu, “Arjun…i don’t know where that girl is now. She is not picking my call also. I want you both to be in office in another 1/2 an hr.”
He finished and disconnected the call..he still did not come out from his sleep completely. He goes to her room and finds her sleeping cuddling herself in her pillow.
He murmurs saying, “How can she sleep so peacefully after what she did yesterday? Now venu is shouting in a high pitch…what she gonna explain him about this”
He wakes her up and after a long struggle she gets up and he informs her what Venu told. Since she expected this did not react much and goes to get ready. Arjun also gets ready and both leaves from there to office. Both knows what kind of a cyclone they have formed yesterday and they are thinking how to handle Venu in this matter.
Precap: Commissioner gets tensed reading the news and dials to some one immediately. Rads smiles seeing the message from an unknown number asking her to move out from
the murder case.
